The 13th World Youth Scout Forum ended in Gabala last week.

With 327 participants from 133 countries, this became the largest ever Youth Forum of the world scouts.  

The World Scout Youth Forum served as a platform for work, communication and exchange of ideas between young leaders aged 18-26. The young leaders have been passing through some scouts activities in order to create strong and cohesive international teams.

The forum took place in Qafqaz Resorte Hotel under the motto "Dream, believe and act", Azertac reported.

The largest gathering in the history of the scout movement was co-organized by Association of Scouts of Azerbaijan (ASA) and the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

The forum participants held various sessions dedicated to leadership, active citizenship, environmental protection, sustainable development and other important issues.

The evening of culture was organized on August 10, where participants demonstrated the history and traditions. In their spare time young people participated in various competitions and toured places of interest in Gabala.

The Forum elected new Youth Advisors to the 2017-2020 World Scout Committee.

The main purpose of young advisors is to create opportunities to enhance the role of youth in the decision-making process within the World Organization of the Scout Movement.

After the 13th World Scout Youth Forum, young leaders will gather at the 41st World Scout Conference.

The World Scout Conference will be held at the Baku Congress Center on August 14-18.

The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) is the largest international Scouting organization, attracting millions of young people who become active citizens, creating positive changes in the societies in which they live.

The Association of Scouts of Azerbaijan is the national Scouting organization of Azerbaijan and was founded in 1997, and became the member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement on August 20, 2000.
